oak veneer

4

Finally had to make time to get some glamor shots of the Apothecary Cabinet I was working on in January.

The best part of making this was the custom pattern veneers used for the drawer fronts. Made with Redwood, and I hope it shows I worked at getting the pattern to be a cohesive whole across all the drawers. The pulls are Rosewood. The drawers are finished with Tried&True Varnish/Oil blend and wax.

The case itself is White Oak, dyed Dark Mission Brown. The grain is highlighted with Liberon Black Patina wax and then a couple coats of Paste Wax. Ended up having a nice depth of color. One of my new favorite finishing techniques.

One of my best pieces to date, adding this to the portfolio. Hopefully will help me continue to get into better art shows.
